BALEN PÅ BAKGÅRDEN
Lyrics: Emil Norlander
Music: David Hellström

Svenning and Hellström's "Friarevalsen" (The Suitor’s Waltz) was given a second life when the producer Emil Norlander borrowed its melody for his revue "Tokiga Amelie" (Crazy Amelie). Norlander, who was a prolific songwriter, wrote new words for the song and called it "Balen på Bakgården" (The Dance in the Back Yard).

MALMÖ VALSEN
In 1914 Svenning and Hellström wrote "Malmö Valsen" (The Malmö Waltz), also known as "På Baltiskan" (On the Baltic). The piece commemorated the Baltic Exhibition of 1914 that was held in Malmö, Sweden on the eve of the First World War. Hjalmar Peterson and his wife Olga Lindgren recorded the song in 1917 for Columbia Records. The same year Charles G. Widdén recorded "Sångvals" (Song Waltz) for Victor Records. His recording was an adaptation of "Malmö Valsen". It had Hellström’s melody, some of Svenning’s text and new lyrics that were partly in English.
